Carl’s Jr.’s not so natural way of selling their burgers

Carl’s Jr. is an American fast food chain known for its controversial commercials that objectify women in order to sell its products. In this particular ad, the now very famous model Charlotte McKinney walks around in a food market completely nude; flaunting her gorgeous and “perfect” body while all the men at the market stare at her. At the end of the ad [the image inserted above], the blonde bombshell wears very little clothing, accentuating her cleavage while holding an abnormally large hamburger in her hand and then takes a big bite out of it.

Women are not an accessory to a man's outfit

     The Suit Supply company has been known for many of its controversial ads, here I will only be discussing three of which I found to be more degrading towards women. The goal of these ads from the company is to advertise their product which are suits. In all three images, we do see a well-dressed man (or two) but the problem is how the female companion is portrayed.

Analyzing an Ad: Women in the Media

Look good in ALL you do?

The media has grown enormously over the past 10 years. Tv shows, the news, movies, newspapers, social media sites and ads are all used to entertain, inform and stay connected with people across the globe. For the most part this is perceived in a good light. There is, however, a flip side to this. In the media today, there is an increasing amount of objectification and sexism towards women for heterosexual men to consume.

Its Time to Analyze What We See!

       For as long as we can remember, society has taught us about gender. Through a variety of forms of media, we have learnt how men and women should look and behave. Advertisements play a major role in educating society on gender identity. Though this may seem harmless, we tend not to analyze the messages we are told in detail. What is it exactly that we are being taught to think in regards of gender identity? The denim jeans advertisement by Alexander Wang is as example that shows how advertisements corrupt society’s perception of gender identities.

Sexism Sticks To You

The notion that sex sells is one by which nearly all advertising agencies abide. However, in recent years, marketers have begun to take this theory to an extreme. Such is the case with Malaysian airline company Firefly, which received large amounts of criticism after engaging in a distasteful ad campaign several months ago. Of the two pictures which it published, one (posted above) shows the backside of a female flight attendant upon which are imprinted the words "50% off".

Women for Money

 

            Corporations only have one thing in mind; to maximize profit no matter the cost. In order to attract the most customers, fashion companies will target a specific category or a specific gender. Sexism is very present in the world and these fashion firms only make the situation worse. Dolce and Gabbana are known for their exotic and erotic ads, but this image sparked a backlash against the company back in 2015. This ad is a perfect example of the objectification of women because it gives men harsh ideas like gang raping and violence against women.

 

From the G-spot to a Big Stop

In this advertisement conceived by Gucci, a male stands beside a woman and she pulls her panties down while he is clearly attracted to her.  This ad has been banned in the United Kingdom for degrading women. It is obvious that many elements can shock a lot of individuals and its sexual content is shown in a very unique and special way. The male dominance marked by the young man, the submission presented by the lady and the “G”-shaved monogram near the sex of the female represent the effects that the consumption of the products made by Gucci can create.
